Accounting, Finance and International Business - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. The Accounting, Finance and International Business programme at Keele encourages you to take a critical and globalised approach to the theory and practice of management and finance. You will learn how to use industry standard software such as Bloomberg and Sage to organise, present and analyse business data and can opt to enhance your employability skills by taking a placement year between years two and three of your studies. Finance modules are designed to help you understand the theories leading to the design of financial institutions, the services they provide and the products they sell. Topics covered range from optimal portfolio creation and management, to project appraisals and financing, to risk management through the use of such derivatives as options, futures and swaps. Our modules are accredited by chartered organisations such as CIMA and the programme is recognised by a number of professional accountancy bodies, that provide some important exemptions from professional exams, should you choose to further your career in accountancy. With a solid understanding of management, accounting and finance in their global context, you could work in a variety of roles. You may work as an investment analyst, financial trader, banker or investment banker, chartered or management accountant, or tax advisor anywhere in the world. You could also decide to go on to study for a postgraduate qualification in management, accounting or finance.
